If you're in the market for a new Apple Watch, you've come to the right place - we've got the very best Apple Watch deals to get you tapping away on your wrist in no time. 

Apple is continuing its push into the watch market with Apple Watch Series 3, which sees a cellular option added to the range. 

Each Apple Watch is available in 38mm and 42mm varieties. 

Which Apple Watch should you get?

If you're looking for the best best Apple Watch, you'll want the Series 3. Both the Series 2 and 3 are water resistant to 50 metres, both also have a faster dual-core processor and GPU, and a brighter display compared to the original Apple Watch. 

Crucially, with the Series 3, there’s built-in GPS, which can measure routes, pace and distance when you’re out on a run or hike without needing an iPhone – often a criticism of the first Apple Watch.

There's now a ceramic Apple Watch Series 3 Edition model at the top end which is now available in two finishes - white and a super-smart grey, and it has also partnered with Nike to create the Apple Watch Nike+.

And be aware that the Series 1 isn’t the oldest Watch rebadged, it does have the better dual-core processor inside. Prices for Series 1 start at £269 and Series 2 at £369.

The biggest update coming to the Apple Watch Series 3 is a cellular connection, enabling you to use the smartwatch free from an iPhone or Wi-Fi network. You'll even be able to make voice calls over cellular, again, without an iPhone present. 

This is really useful for people who use their Apple Watch for running, and hate taking their iPhones with them - you'll even be able to stream music from Apple Music.

 Best Apple Watch Series 2 deals 

The Apple Watch Series 2 saw a big update to the Watch internally, even if it remained  largely unchanged on the outside but has now been discontinued in favour of the Series 3. Still, that means there will be some good deals on it.

Exactly the same housing as the original model but boosted with a dual-core processor and comes with watchOS 3 out of the box. Apple clearly thought the original needed that extra bit of power for tasks so it’s a welcome change, but you don’t get as many options as you did with the very first Watch.

Best Apple Watch Nike+ deals 

Apple has partnered with Nike to create the Apple Watch Nike+, a range of runner-oriented models. So here are the best Apple Watch Nike+ deals.
